Lush Twilight Shower Gel

Lush has recently released their Christmas Collection for 2012, and Lushies (myself included) always look forward to the holiday products. Perhaps the most popular product is Snow Fairy, but I find it much too sweet of a scent for my taste. When I first saw a bottle of Twilight Shower Gel*, I was so excited, because I love the Twilight bath bomb!



"To our Twilight Bath Bomb fans, we heard your requests. Here it is, a Twilight shower gel, so you can lather up in iridescent purple lavender and tonka bubbles. If you haven't smelled this fragrance before, you're in for a treat! It's slightly sweet with the perfect herbal balance. Wonderful to use in the evening before bed, especially on cold, winter nights. Dreams do come true!"

I really enjoy this scent, it is quite heavily lavender based, and deep. I think that this shower gel is perfect for anyone (like myself), who showers at night. Lavender is a great scent to help you wind down and relax. 


There is a ton of shimmer/glitter in this formula! I was really excited about this, but I quickly realized that it all just sits at the bottom of the bottle. Even when I shook the bottle for several minutes, hardly any glitter had moved. If you don't like shimmer, then this is great for you. But I like shimmer! I would have loved it if the shimmer in this formula was dispersed throughout the bottle.


Twilight shower gel is a limited edition product, so if you like it, stock up! This shower gel has a great lather, especially if you use a loofah. I do find that the scent it light, and it won't fill up your whole bathroom, or linger on your skin. I would have liked a bit of a stronger scent, especially for a limited edition product. 

Overall, I love Lush's holiday collections, but I think there's a bit of room for improvement in the Twilight Shower Gel. I would have loved it if the shimmer was throughout the entire bottle, not just settling at the bottom. Also, the scent could have been made a bit stronger for my tastes. However, I still really enjoy using this shower gel, and it does have a calming and relaxing effect when used at night. 

Lush's Christmas Collection is available in stores and online now, I highly recommend checking out this line, and giving the products a sniff. The smaller 100 ml bottle costs $9.95, the 250 ml for $18.95, and the larger 500 ml bottle for $27.95. Lush's shower gels are a bit pricey, but I think they are a nice treat, and make a wonderful gift. 

Have you checked out Lush's Christmas line? What are your thoughts? :)
